Poorna strikes back in Kollywood


Actress Poorna is awaiting the release of three Tamil movies, which include Karu Pazhaniappan’s Jannal Oram — the
remake of the hit Malayalam movie Ordinary. “In Jannal Oram, I reprise the role played by Ann Augustine in the original. Unlike the other characters that I have played so far, this role gave me a lot of scope for performance.” Ganesh Vinayak’s Thagaraaru and Raghav’s crime thriller, Padam Pesum, will also see Poorna in the lead. Meanwhile, the actress has struck gold ever since her Telugu movie, Avanu, went on to become a success at the box office. Now, the actress has signed two more Telugu movies — Nuvvala Nenila and Ravi Babu’s untitled movie. Poorna will play the love interest of Varun Sandesh of Happy Days fame in Nuvvala Nenila. “I play a software engineer in this romantic movie. It’s bubbly and fun character,” says Poorna, who is currently shooting for the movie. “After the success of Avanu, in which I played the role of a newly-wed girl stalked by a ghost, Ravi Babu approached me for a second project, which is apparently a big budget movie. There will be four main characters — a hero, a small kid, the kid’s mother and a young girl. I play the young girl, while the male lead is essayed by Allari Naresh. I cannot reveal more about my role. All I can say is that, Naresh will be seen in a new avatar in the film.”
